Groundbreakers: Heritage trail and guide

Telling the back story of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park site from the Bronze Age to the Digital Age

The area now occupied by the Park has a long and complex history of human settlement, manufacture, and recreational use, as well as a changing population of plants and animals. In these ways the site has continually responded to the larger forces at work in London - and the world - over the past centuries.  This tour celebrates the area before the Park with a free, online map and guide features information and photographs about 32 historic sites and topics, a downloadable guidebook, and an Augmented Reality trail accessed using QR codes displayed at nine key locations in the Park.  There are also teaching materials and session plans for schools and youth groups visiting the Park, developed by a professional teacher and field trip leader.
